GEORGIA INPATIENT DETOX: THE FIRST STEP
Detox, also known as withdrawal management, is an essential step on the road to recovery. The use of drugs or alcohol leads to harmful toxins building up in the body. Detoxification removes those substances, preparing patients physically and psychologically for the next phase of treatment.
Bluff offers medically supervised subacute detoxification for drugs and alcohol at our serene residential treatment center outside Augusta, GA. We provide nutritious meals prepared by our on-site chef, a peaceful setting, and expert staff to ensure our inpatient detox patients feel safe, comfortable and supported.
Our multidisciplinary team is compassionate about substance abuse detox and rehabilitation. We serve each of our inpatient detox clients with the highest quality patient care and attention to ensure a full recovery and a more fulfilling life.

The Importance of Medically Supervised Detox
Breaking free of substance use can be dangerous for some individuals if not supervised by experienced staff. When people attempt to detox from alcohol and drugs on their own, or if detox is conducted improperly, there can be serious consequences including seizures and death. Medically supervised detox is strongly recommended for alcohol, opiate or benzodiazepine withdrawal.
At Bluff’s detox centers in Georgia, alcohol and drug detox is administered and monitored by expert addiction professionals. Patients also receive individualized care from 24-hour nursing staff and daily support from psychiatrists, therapists and counselors. We use evidence-based medicine in accordance with guidelines from the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), the Substance Use and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
Customized Detox and Treatment Plan at our Detox Center in Goergia
We create a specialized inpatient detox and treatment plan just for you based on the type of substance used, amount and duration used, medical history, and individual preferences. Co-occurring mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress are also diagnosed and addressed.
Through our partnership with the Medical College of Georgia/Augusta University Medical Center, we also offer inpatient care for individuals with complex cases or who are at risk of complications at our drug and alcohol detox centers in Georgia. We have the expertise and the medical resources to ensure the utmost safety and comfort for every individual undergoing inpatient detox.
Medication to Ease Withdrawal
We use a variety of medications as appropriate to relieve alcohol and drug detox withdrawal symptoms, reduce anxiety and prepare patients mentally and physically for the next phase of treatment. Every patient is assessed on a case by case basis by our doctors and medical staff to determine a withdrawal management plan appropriate for their individualized situation.
Stabilization and Transition into Treatment
While detox is a vital step in recovery, it’s only the beginning of drug and alcohol rehab. After patients are medically stabilized, they are encouraged to continue treatment in our highly regarded, Joint Commission-accredited residential program. Combining medical, clinical, experiential and holistic therapies, Bluff’s detox center in GA provides patients with the support needed to restore their health and build the skills for a meaningful, lasting recovery.
